I settled on a pattern finally and just started tying! My bad.
The jig hook nymph patterns took me a bit to get use to, but starting to get the hang of it.
Tying a tugston bead flash back pheasant tail jig nymph with CDC. Or something like that.

NEVER wonder what to do with your free time
A question about technique- the slotted bead will slide down until it covers the entire hook eye. Are you guys turning it "sideways" to keep that from happening? Or is there another technique to prevent this?

I am turning the bead around and the small hole hits the eye and the slot is nearly covered by my threat collar.

Sometimes when putting on the bead you have to rotate it to find the position that allows it to go around the bend of the hook.

I actually checked on line to see some patterns on the slotted beads. The slot goes to the rear of the hook. I had the same thoughts before I started tying. That's a killer pattern, by the way.
